Life: The Musical – Act 1

LifeTheMusicalThe Story
Life – The Musical is an original AFA production is a journey featuring songs of about life. Each act features an aspect of life as a theme with music supplied around that theme.

Act 1
Act 1 features life, so titles must include life, living, alive, lived, or live (that rhymes with give, not five).

Production Note
It has come to my attention that past acts have crashed browsers. Please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

Announcement
We need a legend to kickoff our new musical. Fittingly, a musical invasion came to the USA 50 years ago that helped reshape music. Ladies and gentlemen, aFa Productions presents Life: The Musical … and to raise the opening night curtain, we’ve secured a legend. Start clapping and get ready to sing along to Got to Get You Into My Life with Sir Paul McCartney!

    • Tim,
      Three alarm clocks obviously isn’t enough to get a jump on the participants here! Nonetheless, Ella Fitzgerald is a great addition as I felt I was in a lounge with drink in hand.

    • Fasab,
      Well … the Producer gave me the word that The Eagles is out because it’s already used … and he’s a bit in a snit over Parklife because it’s not Park Life. Otherwise, Dido and The Ramones is good to go!

  1. Ah, I know I missed the party but I prepared this one early in the week and finally have time to post. How lovely that no one claimed it! A song I’ve sung many times, lyrics written by the amazing team of Alan and Marilyn Bergman and music by Michel LeGrand. Recorded by many artists, from Sinatra to Sting, here is Barbara Streisand singing “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?” from the 1969 movie “The Happy Ending” – the song was nominated for an Oscar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQWqmiHK-WE Enjoy!

  12. I know I have no business adding my two cents’ worth, being beyond late to the party but in all fairness, I’ve just met you, so to speak. Of course I had to go back to the beginning and see what all this hullaballoo is about. I wanna play too! ;-) The upside of this is I can see what has been submitted and ensure I don’t try to repeat! So, if you are willing to add to your Playbill, I give you Frank Sinatra and “That’s Life”, ‘coz frankly, no Frank has been submitted! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIiUqfxFttM

    • Dale,
      Welcome to the Act 1 … and no apologies needed, after all, the program provides links for anyone to revisit. Glad you notice that songs can’t be duplicated. … and that classic Sinatra song is perfect for this act. … and thanks for going back to we’re it started. (BTW: This is the second musical .. Time: The Musical started it all)
